Saudi Air Strike In Yemen Mountains Decimates Houthis - 23 Killed

I guess when a Saudi fighter jet bombs a Shiite Houthi munitions factory and kills 23 jihadis, the only thing better would be if the Saudi fighter jet crashed on the way back to Riyadh but we'll take what we can get.

The story comes from Times of India.

Saudi-led air strike on Yemen rebel bastion kills 23

SANAA: A Saudi-led air strike on a Huthi Shia rebel stronghold in Yemen's northern mountains killed 23 people early Saturday, tribal sources said.

The strike targeted a munitions factory in Saqayn, near Saada, the sources said.

Coalition aircraft also bombed the rebel-held capital Sanaa, targeting an arms warehouse and the air defence headquarters, witnesses said.

The coalition launched air strikes against the rebels in March, after the Huthis seized control of much of the country prompting President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi to take refuge in neighbouring Saudi Arabia.
